If you wish to reduce your study load from full-time (4 units per Trimester/Semester) to part-time (2 or less), please contact the Student and Academic Services team as soonas possible on to ensure you can enrol and so we canmanually reduce your study load, as this will affect the enrolment process for you.

Please also be aware that studying less than 75 credit (less than 3 units) per study period, classifies you as a part-time student, and this will affect the time of completion for your Diploma and delay your progression to Curtin University, and will not match the end date on your offer letter. It will also affect your Transperth concession.
